My son works in underwriting for an insurance company in illinois Country Financial. He was moved to a different department in which there will be a cut back. He found a job paying $12000 less. His present employer wanted him to work 120 days more, finally agreed on 90 days and a $37000 severance pay
, plus he would be elgible for some retirement when he reached a certain age. Now age 47 has been with co. 17 years. Has had outstanding evaluations, no improper behavior, but has been inquisitive at meetings about certain moves by the company. He is being terminated tomorrow, has been locked out of co. web site at home where he works some times.
Ill is, or at least the company is an 'at will
' policy. If he is denied retirement and severance package, what is his recourse. He as a BS, wife a physical thearapist, three great children, no financial, legal, duis, just a great son and family man.
He wants his severance pay, retirement, and happy to leave as he now hates to go to work. What rights does he have that he may not be aware?
